Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: As regular blog visitors will know I’m a bit of a petrol-head (gear-head) and like the industrial engineered look. This design takes its visual inspiration from RC car nitro engines. The time telling method is a variation of a previous design “Hybrid” hence the name “Hybrid – Nitro”
The time telling method uses a combination of an analogue movement used in conjunction with a segmented EL display that is seperated into rings. The minutes are described by the analogue disc that is essentially a skeleton seperated into 12 rings. A bar running through the disc points towards the minutes, whilst the rings frame the segments of the EL display that describe the hours. The exterior of this design would ideally be made from machined and anodised aluminium for that billet bespoke look.
The exterior of this particular design is very industrial and makes a real statement. This watch will mostly appeal to guys who like large watches with mechanical or engineered looks. This is a narrow market but would play into the limited edition ethos.
The brutal looks combined with intuative time telling sets this design apart from others. The machined exterior combined with anodised finish will give the design an engineered feel that makes this design a statement piece.
